There must be a reason for this difference from 500mm to around 450mm since they all say rigids like that can replace suspension one. But that is more than 20% difference, hmmm
Since you're running disc brakes it doesn't matter if the fork is listed as a 26" or 29er. Anyways looking at the numbers from other manufacturers it I'd double check your axle to crown measurement, 503 seems more likely for the 29er version of that fork.
